Congratulations to Wondimu Tilahun and John King!
Wondimu Tilahun is Colonial’s newest Senior Facility Care Manager!
Wondimu has been with Colonial® for 17 years and was previously a Project Manager at NIH before moving to the Facility Care Department to lead the Pressure Wash Service Unit.
According to Wondimu’s supervisor and Vice President of Facility Care, Abu Woldeamanuel, “With his hard work, Colonial Parking’s in-house pressure wash service is preferred by our clients and has earned a quality brand name recognition…[our clients] refer us to work on their other buildings and continue to use us even after Colonial has ceased parking operation.
John started as a temp with Colonial in 2011 and was officially hired as an Escalation Specialist in Customer Care four months later. John then took over the Government Contracts role, in Customer Care in 2014. He is now the Project Manager for Boston Properties, 2200 Pennsylvania Ave NW.
Lori V. Gagnon, Vice President of Customer Care, explains “It has been my great pleasure to work with John for the past 5 years and I have always enjoyed his strong work ethic and his ability to connect with our customers. He is a true professional, as can be seen by our Government Contract customers’ appreciation for him. I wish him great success in his new adventure.”
